Yakitori @ Eat Me Speak Me

April 23, 2015

If you are not familiar with Eat Me Speak Me, it’s the weekend pop-up at Gato in Candler Park helmed by Jarrett Stieber. It’s a lot of fun. Jarrett has a real knack for plating and textures on a menu which features lots of great vegetables and sauces and “alternative” cuts of meat. It’s BYOB, in case […]

Pepperoni Ragu

April 21, 2015

Last week I found I had a bunch of pepperoni and sausages in my fridge and decided to make ragu with both. I chopped them roughly (removing the sausage casing) and sliced onions and cooked it all over low heat for a while. I added some garlic and oregano and salt and then a can of San Marzano […]

O4W Pizza

April 13, 2015

It’s sort of embarrassing, but I sit around and reminisce about food some times, reading old blog posts and looking at photos, thinking about how much I love great butter or a pan of rice. It’s even more fun with friends, like at a get together last night where I was talking about a barbecue trip I took […]

Thai foods are some of my favorite to eat. Similar to Vietnamese cuisine, I enjoy the aromatic herbs and lemongrass, the dynamic acidity, occasional funk, and the spice. It always evokes freshness and afterwards I never feel like I’m dying a slow chicken fried steak death, which isn’t the worst way to leave this world. My complaint is that, at […]

Minero – Charleston

March 30, 2015

A week ago I visited Charleston for a couple of days for a work retreat, where we spent the mornings plotting our success in future years. In the afternoons we enjoyed the scenery, food, and beverages (aka team building). We had some excellent meals and drinks at Edmund’s Oast, Rutledge Cab Company, Husk, FIG, and Leon’s Oyster Shop. I put all my […]

Bacon Brothers

March 27, 2015

Last year I briefly posted about it, but my favorite restaurant as of late in Greenville SC (I’m there 2-3 days a week) is Bacon Brothers Public House, led in the kitchen by chef Anthony Gray, formerly of Southern Art in Atlanta. When I first heard the name of the restaurant a few years ago, I was a […]

Tacos La Villa

March 24, 2015

Tacos La Villa in Smyrna. Buford Highway (el rey, taco veloz, etc) is my go-to for this style of simple tacos. But on this side of town, Tacos La Villa is the best option I’ve tried. Many others seems to agree, it was super crowded for lunch. $5.99 for three tacos, rice, beans. Meats were above […]
